We’re a Spark Prize Finalist!
“Brooklyn is home to nearly 3,000 nonprofits, yet they collectively receive less than 5% of funds distributed by New York City foundations,” said Brooklyn Community Foundation President and CEO Cecilia Clarke. “We created the Spark Prize to drive support to the borough’s vibrant nonprofit sector and showcase outstanding community-led solutions addressing Brooklyn’s most critical challenges. Congratulations to the 20 finalists—we are so proud to have you represent the excellence, breadth, and diversity of Brooklyn’s unique nonprofit sector.”
The Spark Prize will award up to $600,000 to outstanding Brooklyn-serving nonprofits. A diverse committee of distinguished civic, business, and neighborhood leaders all hailing from Brooklyn chose the 20 finalists from a highly competitive pool of 150 applicants. We couldn’t be more excited!
